Maker's bio

I have been turning wood since just before the end of the last century. I have been demonstrating turning at home and overseas for 20 years and teaching it for over 15 years. I have written many articles for the woodturning press and for the web. In 2011 I was won the Tony Boase Tribute award at the AWGB international seminar. I am an AWGB approved tutor and a tutor assessor. My aim is to provide you with the knowledge and techniques to take your woodturning to the next level and I teach all levels from complete beginners to experts.

Andy reviewed: Woodturning half day taster

"Wood turning with Paul was a delightful experience. He strikes a great balance between stepping in to make sure that you’re safe and know what you’re doing and stepping back to let you get on with it when he sees you’re on the right track. This really helps you build confidence as you work through the different tasks and cuts he teaches. In the half day session we took a square practice block, turned it into a cylinder, and learned how to make concave and convex cuts. We then repeated the process with another block also drilling the middle out to create a vase. Walking away with a lovely little vase was the perfect end to a great session. I would recommend this experience for anyone young or old who wants to start a new hobby, or is just curious about how ornate furniture was made."

Richard Worrall reviewed: Woodturning Absolute Beginners

"Fantastic course by Paul Hannaby, lovely cozy workshop. Paul was very patient, he took us through the safety aspects of using a lathe, tutored us in tool sharpening and all the basic cuts in Woodturning, definitely recommend for the beginner, as with most craftwork, it’s harder than it looks until you know some of the tricks of the trade, then it’s practice, practice, practice. Thank you Paul, will be back for an ‘Improvers Course’ when I’ve practiced some more."

" Thanks for the feedback Richard. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and I look forward to next time."
